Research and Internships: The Art and Science of Art Conservation

In 2004, inspired by the Scripps Landscape and Architectural Blueprint Committee’s recommendation to preserve the historic character of the campus, Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery Director Mary MacNaughton ’70 spearheaded a massive restoration of the eight relief sculptures that adorn the exterior walls of Sycamore Court and Balch Hall, each depicting a seminal scene from eight of William Shakespeare’s plays.
